Something Radical

We are bringing you something completely radical for a bead store – this week we have … glass beads.

I know, I know – it’s a stretch for us. What are we thinking? Well – I just want you to know that we are on the bleeding edge – the forefront of new and innovative technologies – bringing you untried and untested ideas so that you too can craft designs so forward-thinking that long after we are all dust – folks will be saying – “wow – they were so far ahead of their time.”

Fancy Fire polished faceted beads. Old stock – it has been lurking about in boxes for years, and trust me – buy what you need, because we can’t restock these.

Fire polished beads are faceted and then smoothed slightly and gently with a flame to take the sharp edges off the facets, making them smooth and comfy-wumfy to wear. They make lovely accents to your designs, or as the main course.

As always – all the new stuff is here. Cheers!

We are always happy to combine orders – and if it bumps you up to free shipping – excellent – we combine them automatically and refund the difference.
Alternately – place your second (or third, fourth, fifth!) orders as “callback” and we will sort it out and call you for cc info.
